Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Petersham

I can't travel far from Petersham. Is there a reason why all Petersham conveyancers are not on all bank panels?

Mortgage Companies ordinarily restrict either the type or the number of conveyancing practices on their approved list of lawyers. A common example of such restriction(s) being that the practice is required to have at least two partners. As well as restricting the nature of firm, some building societies made a decision to limit the size of their panel they permit to act for them. It is worth noting that lenders have no liability for the standard of advice given by any Petersham solicitor on their panel. Property fraud was the main trigger for the reduction of conveyancing panels a few years ago notwithstanding that there are conflicting views concerning the extent of solicitor involvement in some of that fraud. Data from HMLR reveal that thousands of law firms only conduct one or two conveyances annually. Those advocating conveyancing panel consolidation ask why law firms should have the right to remain on a bank panel when it is evident that property law is not their speciality?

The Petersham conveyancing firm handling our Petersham conveyancing has identified a difference between the surveyor’s assumptions in the valuation report and what is in the legal papers for the property. My solicitor has advised that he must check that the bank is OK with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my conveyancer’s approach correct?

Your conveyancing practitioner must comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook requirements which do require that your lawyer disclose any incorrect assumptions in the lender’s valuation report and the legal papers. Should you refuse to allow your lawyer to make the appropriate notification then your lawyer will have no choice but to discontinue acting for both parties.

I only have Sixty One years remaining on my flat in Petersham. I need to get lease extension but my freeholder is can not be found. What options are available to me?

On the basis that you meet the appropriate requirements, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can submit an application to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will enable the lease to be extended by the magistrate. You will be obliged to demonstrate that you have used your best endeavours to find the landlord. In some cases an enquiry agent would be useful to try and locate and prepare a report to be used as evidence that the freeholder is indeed missing. It is advisable to get professional help from a solicitor in relation to investigating the landlord’s disappearance and the application to the County Court covering Petersham.

I have attempted and failed to negotiate with my landlord to extend my lease without getting anywhere. Can the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal adjudicate on such matters? Can you recommend a Petersham conveyancing firm to assist?

Where there is a absentee landlord or if there is dispute about the premium for a lease extension, under the relevant legislation it is possible to make an application to the First-tier Tribunal (Property Chamber) to assess the sum to be paid.

An example of a Lease Extension decision for a Petersham property is Ground Floor Flat 91 Bath Road in May 2009. in a case where the freeholder could not be traced, the Brentford County Court ordered that the Lease be surrendered in return for the grant of a new lease of the Premises at a premium determined by the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal. The tribunal concluded that the price payable by the Applicant for the new lease of the premises be £15,900 This case affected 1 flat. The unexpired lease term was 60.45 years.

My hope is to acquire a garden flat in Petersham. Conveyancing solicitor has been waiting for, from the seller, building insurance schedule. I was told today I was informed that the seller must forward the insurance documents for the flat above as well. Why does my solicitor want to check the insurance for the other flat? Is it really required? We have been stalled for the previous month…

It is not unheard of in leasehold conveyancing in Petersham to find Conveyancing in Petersham in a minority of cases reveals that the lease provides for the tenant's to insure their individual flats rather than the freeholder insuring the whole property - which is clearly preferable. Do double check with your solicitor but it would appear that your conveyancer is attempting to establish that the complete building is insured. Insuring your residence is no help when it comes to rebuilding after a fire if the 1st floor cannot be reconstructed as a result of lack of insurance cover.
